Tributes from around the scientific community and all over the world are pouring in for the prominent physicist, cosmologist, and legendary scientist Stephen Hawking, who died early on Wednesday, aged 76.

He died peacefully at his home in the early hours of Wednesday, his family said in a statement confirming his death at his home in Cambridge.

Hawking’s children, Lucy, Robert, and Tim said in a statement: “We are deeply saddened that our beloved father passed away today.”

He was a great scientist and an extraordinary man whose work and legacy will live on for many years. His courage and persistence with his brilliance and humour inspired people across the world.

It would not be much of a universe if it wasn’t home to the people you love.’ We will miss him for ever. – Stephen Hawking

Stephen Hawking is considered to be one of the best scientists of our time in an interview with The Guardian in 2011 talked about death and fear.

I have lived with the prospect of an early death for the last 49 years. I’m not afraid of death, but I’m in no hurry to die. I have so much I want to do first. – Stephen Hawking

In the same interview, Professor Hawking dismissed the comforts of belief in the afterlife and said that he expected nothing to greet him after he died.

“I regard the brain as a computer which will stop working when its components fail,” he said. “There is no heaven or afterlife for broken down computers; that is a fairy story for people afraid of the dark.”

One of the world’s best-loved scientists, renowned for his work on black holes, time and relativity will be in our heart for his greatest contribution to science as well as his personality and inspiration to millions. Here is how the tech community and social media are mourning for our beloved scientist Professor Hawking.
